Download PDF for this date

The 31st annual convention of the Zeirei Agudath Israel, Orthodox youth organization, will open tomorrow at King David Hotel in Hurleyville, N.Y. to chart a program for intensification of educational activities among Jewish youth throughout the United States.

The convention, which will last three days, will also discuss the role of Orthodox youth in coping with religious problems in this country. One of the session will be devoted to the problem of the women’s draft in Israel, which is opposed by the Agudath Israel and other religious groups. The convention will be addressed by prominent rabbis.
